TOURNEY WATCH: 3/27/2010

OK, I had a feeling Saint Mary's had some very favorable match-ups versus Richmond and Villanova, so I wasn't surprised their run came to an end Friday night.

But at one point early in the second half, Baylor led 50-17.

That is not a typo. FIFTY to SEVENTEEN.

How the hell does that happen in the Sweet Sixteen?

I'll tell you how: Bad seeding by the tournament selection committee.

Nevertheless, congratulations to the Bears, who moved to within a game of their first Final Four since 1950 and posted their most wins in a season ever.

But the real test begins tomorrow when they face Duke. There's a world of difference between a No. 1 seed and a really lucky, but flawed, No. 10 seed.
